We aren't exactly sure of the location, but the assistant told us it was...

    Hooting - heart or URI?

    I've just started hearing loud hooting coming from the cage. I've watched her for a few hours and she only does this when eating or bending over to scratch herself. I have checked thoroughly; there is no discharge around the eyes and nose, she is very active, eating fine and I can't hear a thing...
